Description: VR Pianist is a VR music game where you can play on virtual piano. Enjoy unique ‘line-art’ graphic style together with contemporary, classical and orchestral music. Maybe you are the hidden talent waiting to be discovered!

Review: On the whole, there is not much wrong with ‘VR Pianist’, but it is still not something I will be recommending to the majority of people reading this. You see, learning to play the piano in VR is kind of pointless. You don’t get the tactile feedback of the keys, nor is this a tutorial of sorts. This might sound weird coming from a VR blog, but it really would be betters suited to AR (Augmented reality) rather than VR technology. And to make things worse it would be far better on the Quest so you can use finger tracking. This really is more of a slow-paced music rhythm game than a piano learning app, but maybe someone will be able to learn something from it.

I do like the art style I suppose and there are 21 tracks to pluck the ivories along with. But with so many other free apps out there that offer the same thing as well as the technology not really being a good fit for this type of app I have to say this really is only going to be for a small group of people. It’s not fun enough to be a game, but it costs more than most other apps that do the same thing. I am sure someone will like this, but that person wasn’t me.
